by E. E. Cummings
This is a piece that I recently made and use as a bookmark. This is is good for the origami as it compresses the piece much more neatly into a flat leaf and because it is functional which makes me happy.
I like the fact that the edges of the paper are the edge of the leaf, this is surprisingly rare in models I have seen.
I also like the fact that the back still has the overall shape of a leaf but the silly amount of folding becomes like the complexity of veins in a leaf. If you hadn't noticed I am quite chuffed with this design.
The poem is one that my partner introduced to me before we started going out, it is nice to have a model to go with it.
